And it does (smile). What a great meeting today! 88% attendance, a guest, and 30 quality leads/referrals/updates that have all been posted to our dynamic CRM. Life just does not get any better. As I like to say, if you can find a better B2B networking group………join it. Members in any group make the difference. Members like ours make all the difference. My hat is off to each and everyone of them. And, even in trying times like this, we are continuing to grow.
I mentioned in a previous article that I had created and posted an event in LinkedIn that invited qualified folks to attend a meeting as our guest. And, I am pleased to say, that has worked and probably better than I had anticipated. I’m building up quite a stack of names for followup. Even more interesting is that I have not yet sent out personalized invitations. That starts tomorrow. Like NetWorks!, I think that maybe LinkedIn works too (smile).
See this event by clicking here. I would like to clarify that this is an ongoing invitation. LinkedIn makes me set a specific date. In order to participate, your business must be B2B and your services may not compete with any of our existing members. If you are B2B but your service does compete, I would still like to speak with you. Please read on.
Ultimately, I expect to have our present group filled out in the next month or two. At the same time, I had lunch with a client recently who has encouraged me to start a second group so that he can join in. As you may know, membership in NetWorks! is limited to one member per industry. Furthermore, this client has other folks in his circle that would also like to explore a new group. If you have an interest in NetWorks!, but it is determined that your services compete with an existing member, I would like to speak with you about the possibility of the new group which will follow a format identical to that of our current meeting but will likely be a Tuesday Breakfast Group.
Well, it’s been a long day today so I am going to run. You all take care and thanks for visiting!
